Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction
The ATTIC provides FREE academic-support services for most Lafayette courses. As a means of providing more opportunity and availability of its academic-support services, the ATTIC is piloting a resource tutoring program for select courses this Spring 2014.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a student-led, collaborative learning opportunity available for many academically demanding courses. The SI leader is a student who previously excelled in the course and works closely with the course professor to design materials and review sessions that support student learning. Students, who regularly participate in SI, learn how to integrate course content and study strategies while working with their classmates. Refer to the Supplemental Instruction Schedule for the current courses offered. SI is the academic-support service for students enrolled in the listed courses. SI leaders provide Resource Tutoring during designated Office Hours.
The ATTIC coordinates most of the tutoring support with the exception of the College Writing Program, Calculus Cavalry, the Foreign Language & Literature Resource Center, and the Minority Scientists and Engineers tutoring program. Group tutoring and individual tutoring support are available for most Lafayette courses. We ask that you please review the following support services before completing a tutor request form.
